1. DESCRIPTION
The Viking Easy Riser Swing Check Valve is a general purpose rubber-faced
check valve approved for use in fire service systems. The valve is for use in wet
system risers, preaction system risers and wherever a check valve with a drain
connection and gauge connections can be utilized. When used with a flow switch
on wet pipe systems not requiring a mechanical alarm, the Easy Riser Swing
Check Valve may replace an alarm check valve.
1-A Features
1. Ductile iron body for less weight and extra strength.
2. Rated to 300 psi (20.7 bar) water working pressure.
3. Rubber-faced clapper hinged to access cover for quick removal and easy
servicing. All moving parts can be serviced without removing the valve
from the installed position.
4. With the cover/clapper assembly removed, clapper rubber replacement
requires removal of only one screw.
5. Valve housing tapped for inlet and outlet pressure gauges, and system
main drain.
1-B Accessories
300 PSI (20.7 bar) Trim Package including:
A. All necessary nipples and fittings
B. Main Drain Ball Valve
C. Necessary gauges

3. TECHNICAL DATA
Specifications:
Standard Flanged Connections: ANSI B16.42 Class 150 (mates with ANSI Class 125 and Class 150 flanges).
Standard Grooved Connections: ANSI/AWWA C606
Drain outlet: 2-1/2 and 3 valves - one 1-1/4 (32 mm) NPT; 4, 6 & 8 valves - 2 (50 mm) NPT
Gauge Outlets: two 1/4 (8 mm) NPT
Other Outlets: two 1/2 (15 mm) NPT
Systems with water working pressures above 175 psi (12 bar) may require extra-heavy pattern fittings. Viking Easy Riser Swing
Check Valve flanges are Ductile Iron ANSI B16.42, Class 150, with a maximum water working pressure of 300 psi (20.7 bar). ANSI
B16.42, Class 150 flanges are NOT compatible with ANSI Class 250 or Class 300 flanges. To mate the Easy Riser Swing Check
Valve with ANSI Class 250 or Class 300 flanges, use the grooved-inlet/grooved-outlet style installed with listed grooved/flanged
adapters of the appropriate pressure rating. For piping with grooved connections, the grooved-inlet and/or grooved-outlet style
Easy Riser Swing Check Valve may be installed with listed grooved couplings of the appropriate pressure rating.

4. INSTALLATION
The Easy Riser Swing Check Valve must be installed in an area not subject to freezing temperatures or physical damage. When
corrosive atmospheres and/or contaminated water supplies are present, it is the owners responsibility to verify compatibility with
the Easy Riser Swing Check Valve, trim, and associated equipment.
Prior to installing the valve, thoroughly flush the water supply piping to verify that no foreign matter is present.
The Easy Riser Swing Check Valve may be installed in the vertical position with direction of flow up, or in the horizontal position
with the access cover up.
1. Remove all plastic thread protectors from the openings of the Easy Riser Swing Check Valve.
2. Apply a small amount of pipe-joint compound or tape to the external threads of all pipe connections required. Take care not to
allow any compound, tape, or other foreign matter inside any of the nipples or openings of the valve or trim components.
3. Easy Riser Swing Check Valve Trim Charts are provided with Trim Packages and on the Viking website.
4. Verify that all system components are rated for the water working pressure of the system.
Hydrostatic Test:
The Easy Riser Swing Check Valve is manufactured and listed for use at a maximum water working pressure of 300 psi (20.7
bar). The valve is factory tested at 600 psi (41.4 bar). Easy Riser Swing Check Valves may be hydrostatically tested at 350 psi
(24.1 bar) and/or 50 psi (3.5 bar) above the normal water working pressure for limited periods of time (two hours) for the purpose
of acceptance by the Authority Having Jurisdiction. If air testing is required, DO NOT exceed 40 psi (2.8 bar) air pressure.
5. OPERATION (Refer to Figure 1.)
Water flowing through the Viking Easy Riser Swing Check Valve lifts the rubber-gasketed clapper (8 and 9) off the seat (12) and
flows into the sprinkler piping. When flow through the valve stops, the clapper (8) closes quickly. The rubber gasket (9) forms a
tight seal against the brass water seat (12), trapping pressurized water above the clapper and preventing reverse flow from the
sprinkler piping.
6. INSPECTIONS, TESTS, and maintenance
NOTICE
The owner is responsible for maintaining the fire protection system and devices in proper operating condition.

The Viking Easy Riser Swing Check Valve and trim must be kept free of foreign matter, freezing conditions, corrosive atmos-
pheres, contaminated water supplies, and any condition that could impair its operation or damage the device.
It is imperative that the system be inspected and tested on a regular basis. The frequency of the inspections may vary due to
contaminated water supplies, corrosive water supplies, and corrosive atmospheres. For minimum maintenance and inspection
requirements, refer to NFPA 25. In addition, the Authority Having Jurisdiction may have additional maintenance, testing, and in-
spection requirements that must be followed.

WARNING

Any system maintenance that involves placing a control valve or detection system out of service may eliminate the
fire protection capabilities of that system. Prior to proceeding, notify all Authorities Having Jurisdiction. Consideration
should be given to employment of a fire patrol in the affected areas.

6-A. Five-Year Internal Inspection


Internal inspection of check valves is recommended every five years unless inspections and tests indicate more frequent
inspections are required. (Refer to Figure 1.)
1. Notify the Authority Having Jurisdiction, remote station alarm monitors, and those in the area affected that the system will
be taken out of service. Consideration should be given to employment of a fire patrol in the affected areas.
2. Close the water supply main control valve, placing the system out of service.
3. Open the main drain. If necessary, open the system test valve to vent and completely drain the system.
4. Use the appropriate wrench to loosen and remove cover screws (14), and remove cover and clapper assembly (2-11).
5. Inspect water seat (12). Wipe away all contaminants, dirt, and mineral deposits. DO NOT use solvents or abrasives.
6. Inspect cover and clapper assembly (2-11) and cover gasket (13). Test the hinged clapper (8) for freedom of movement.
Renew or replace damaged or worn parts as required.

CAUTION
NEVER apply any lubricant to seats, gaskets, or any internal operating parts of the valve. Petroleum-based grease or
oil will damage rubber components and may prevent proper operation.
7. When internal inspection of the Easy Riser Swing Check Valve is complete, perform step 6 of paragraph 11.
MAINTENANCE to re-install cover and clapper assembly (2-11).
6-B. Maintenance (Refer to Figure 1.)
1. Perform steps 1 through 5 of paragraph 6-A, FIVE-YEAR INTERNAL INSPECTION.
2. To replace clapper assembly (3, 6-11):
a. Remove the cover screws (14) from the cover (2) using a Socket Wrench with a 9/16 socket.
b. Remove the cover and clapper assembly (2-11) from the valve.
c. Remove the cover gasket (13) by sliding it over the clapper assembly.
d. Remove the existing clapper assembly (3, 6-11) from the cover assembly (2):
i. Remove one of the retaining rings (5) from the clapper hinge pin (4) using a flat head screwdriver.
ii. Remove the clapper hinge pin (4) from the cover and clapper assembly. This will allow the clapper assembly (3, 6-11)
to be removed from the cover assembly (2).
e. Install the new clapper assembly (3, 6-11) onto the cover assembly (2):
i. Make sure the clapper rubber (9) is facing opposite the direction of the flow arrow on the inside of the cover (2).
ii. Line up the holes of the cover assembly (2) and the clapper assembly (3, 6-11) and insert the hinge pin (4).
iii. Install the retaining ring (5) onto the hinge pin (4).
iv. Install the cover gasket (13) onto the new cover and clapper assembly (2-11) by sliding the cover gasket (13) over
the clapper assembly (3, 6-11) and lining up the holes with the cover (2).
v. To install the new cover and clapper assembly (2-11) into the valve, slide the clapper assembly into the valve with
the clapper rubber (9) lined up with the water seat (12). Ensure the rubber retainer (10) fits inside the seat of the
valve (pull back slightly and there should be some resistance).
vi. Line up the holes of the cover (2) and cover gasket (13) with the valve body (1) and replace the cover screws (14)
using a Socket Wrench with a 9/16 socket.
